Your "We Can" Weekend Has Arrived!
This one's for the Grill Master's
Do you have to pick?
What about the burger?
Since the dawn of man we've been grilling.
Hot dog or Hamburger?
And of course the answer would be yes.
However, only slightly behind the burger came the debut of the hot dog. This was nothing short of a mind-blowing experience as they hit the streets in the early 1900's on street carts in NYC (back when 3-6 hot dogs per week was the bare minimum- see last weeks post).
Fact: In 1906 the average American ate 11 hot dogs a day.

So What Do You Do?
The "Cultural decade." The "Swinging Sixties." The time of peace, love, and a whole bunch of other stuff your parents will never tell you about.
The Civil Rights movement. The Anti-War movement..
And the hot dog- hamburger BFFL movement.
I'm talking about burgers and dogs on the same grill.. Foot longs, kosher, medium rare, you name it. People passing around spatulas left and right. Grill swapping and not even using buns! Can you believe it!? I can't imagine living in such a free environment. But it was all gravy baby. "Groovy grilling" was the new big thing and with that came the dawn of a new era.

So the choice is yours
You see it's not just about flipping and eating two of the best things ever created simultaneously. We're also serving a big side of freedom with that dish. And for that I say Grill on America.
